Play-by-play of how you can embarrass yourself on national TV by connecting Obama to Osama
A clip from The $100,000 Pyramid game show in which the contestant's first clue for "People Whose Last Name Is Obama" was "Bin Laden" has been viewed over a million times. @EvanKaufman was the contestant responsible for the viral gaffe, and he's since explained the circumstances behind "perhaps the most embarrassing moment of [his] life."

I was on $100,000 Pyramid. I’m playing with Tim Meadows, one of my heroes from SNL. My son had been born two weeks prior. I am very tired but excited to win money for my family. We play up the whole tired Dad thing. (2/13)— Evan Kaufman (@EvanKaufman) August 14, 2018
“Who else is a famous Obama?” My brain is racing. I need to list multiple people. I can’t just say Barack. What I should have said was, “Michelle, Sasha, Malia, Bo! The PORTUGUESE WATER DOG BO!” (7/13)— Evan Kaufman (@EvanKaufman) August 14, 2018
